AXIMA Performance MALDI TOF/TOF Mass Spectrometer

Highest Energy MS/MS Fragmentation

A highly flexible research-grade MALDI TOF/TOF mass spectrometer

Essential features providing confident results

  • High-resolution MS data in reflectron mode for more accurate and confident peptide mass fingerprinting (PMF) and complex mixture analysis.
  • Uncompromised linear mass range and sensitivity.
  • Near-axis laser irradiation for enhanced ion transmission and sensitivity in all modes of operation.
  • Low sample consumption – allowing many more MS/MS experiments to be performed on the same sample spot.
  • Manual or fully automated operation allowing the seamless analysis of few or many samples as required.
  • Advanced calibration algorithms with easy to use software providing more accurate data.
  • Intuitive software incorporating data dependent workflows for achieving the maximum result with minimal user input, making it ideal for novice and expert users alike.
  • Flexibility - this is not just another proteomics workhorse. Polymers, oligonucleotides, SNPs, metabolites, carbohydrates, small molecules, etc. may all be analyzed and processed.

Additional Features

  • Near-axis laser irradiation with a 50Hz variable repetition rate N2 laser
